I am looking for a content managment system, that works similar to a wiki. I want them just to be able to create new categories, sub categories, articles etc... It needs to have a search function. Its for a client that adds a lot of content and I am trying to make it so that they can just do it all on there own, and categorize it the way they want it. Thanks in advance!
My understanding is that you don't want the public to be able to change things - just your client.
No problem. Set up one or more user IDs for the client's use, and require users to be logged-in to make changes. Take the login section off of the home page, and give your client a private log-in page. (So as to not confuse users.)
Some reworking of the UI and configuration options may be needed to avoid confusing users. Obviously, it shouldn't say "wiki" anywhere, because - from the public's standpoint - it isn't a wiki.
Of course, this depends on what you are trying to accomplish. If it's simply to have a site that is easy for your client to update himself, perhaps a CMS is the solution. On the other hand, perhaps your client has used wikis, is comfortable with the concept, and has said "I want that". Give him that, then.
I think a wiki is a LOT easier to learn than a CMS. If a wiki will do what your client wants, I think that might be the best choice.
